GoDaddy files patents for Domain Title and Fast Transfer

The domain history software may use this historical data to determine any breaks in the chain of title by, for example: 1) comparing the domain registration dates with the domain with the domain expiration dates and identifying non-sequential periods where the next registration date does not immediately follow the previous expiration date; 2) ambiguities in which registrant controls the domain name (e.g., because of privacy services, such as GODADDY’s DOMAINS BY PROXY, or a listed domain name registrant with a history of dishonest domain registration activity); 3) inactive status indicating periods of inactivity; and/or 4) changes in an email address as an access credential for the transfer codes and/or authorization for domain name administration.
